On 16 December 2022, state-owned electricity transmission system operator Ukrenergo declared a state of emergency across Ukrainian energy facilities following Russian missile strikes targeting electrical infrastructure. According to officials, at least 60 missiles were fired at the cities of Dnipro, Kryvyi Rih, Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia and the capital Kyiv in one of the largest Russian missile attacks since the war began. Power outages were reported in the regions of Kharkiv and Kirovohrad. Energy officials have restricted electricity, water and heat services nationwide — including in Kyiv — as authorities begin efforts to restore power in the affected regions.
